WASHINGTON -- The Senate Judiciary Committee heard Thursday morning from one of its own about some of the problems with airline "no fly" watch lists.

Massachusetts Democrat Ted Kennedy said he had a close encounter with the lists when trying to take the U.S. Airways shuttle out of Washington to Boston.

The ticket agent wouldnt let him on the plane. His name was on the list -- in error. After a flurry of phone calls, Sen. Kennedy was able to fly home, but then the same thing happened coming back to Washington.

Kennedy said it took three calls to Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge to get his name stricken from the list. The process took several weeks, in all.

And Kennedy asked -- what about the little guy?

They must have been worried he weighs too much and would make the plane crash.

For once, something in the government actually worked the way it was intended.

Afraid the alchohol fumes will overcome the crew, probably......

"What about the little guy"?

The little guy gets screwed, but at least the little guy can swim.

I always said that If I ever got a bad biopsy, Teddy had something to worry about. I even named a rifle after him. Well, Teddy, pending confirmation, your shit is in the street.

It stands as is. I've got bigger problems now than worry about some pissant moderator or Fedfukk thug. Thanks for the concern, however.

Aimless,

Good call on that one! If that fat fvck Kennedy were to slip and break his neck on the Capital steps, I 'd shed no tears. But comments like Skippy made ain't cool, no way-no how.
